. then we have coming up defending a friend, chuck hagel crossed party lines to endorse bob kerrey in his most recent senate bid and bob can kerry now repaying that favor. a dangerous situation after this downpour of rain flooded roads equaling stranded motorists and a bunch of different rescue calls. we'll tell you where. [ male announcer ] when we built the cadillac ats from the ground up to be the world's best sport sedan... ♪ ...people noticed. ♪ the all-new cadillac ats -- 2013 north american car of the year. ♪ for a limited time, take advantage of this exceptional offer on the all-new cadillac ats. just begin with america's favorite soups. bring out chicken broccoli alfredo. or best-ever meatloaf. go to campbellskitchen.com for recipes, plus a valuable coupon. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. >>> we are following an intense hostage situation in alabama now in its second day. police have confirmed that 65-year-old jimmy lee dykes is responsible for starting a hostage standoff after he shot and killed a 66-year-old bus driver and then kidnapped a 5-year-old boy on tues
nebraska senator bob kerrey and "the atlantic's" steve clemons. senator, it's always an honor to speak with you. the president today said chuck hagel is an american patriot when he announced the nomination of the former senator from your state to head the pentagon. let's take a listen. >> chuck hagel is the leader that our troops deserve. he is an american patriot. he enlisted in the army and volunteered for vietnam. to this day he bears the scars and shrapnel for battles he fought in our name. we see a decorated combat veteran of character and strength. they see one of their own. most importantly, chuck knows war is not an abstraction. he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that's something we only do when it's absolutely necessary. >> well, senator hagel paid tribute to the men and women in uniform at the announcement today. let's listen to the nominee himself. >> mr. president, i am grateful for this opportunity to serve our country again and especially its men and women in uniform and their families. these are people that give so much to
, better-known candidates last summer. in november, shshe defeated forr democratic senator bob kerrey by a wide margin, and replaces retiring democrat ben nelson. deb fischer, welcome and congratulations. >> thank you, judy. great to be here. >> woodruff: given the spectacle we're watching in the congress right now and the last few years and the low regard we know the american hold of congress, are you sure you want this job? >> oh, yes. there is so much that we need to do. we just need to roll up our sleeves and get to work. in nebraska we're very fortunate. we have a nonpartisan unicamral. we have experience with working with republicans and democrats. we've been able to get a lot done in nebraska. i hope i can bring that here to washington as well. >> woodruff: you obviously have not been a part of the senate that has been voting the last few days, but if you were sitting in the senate right now, would you have voted for the version of the fiscal cliff deal that the senate voted on last night? >> i haven't been part of those discussions. like most americans, i find it very, very fr
about this. as you said in my introduction, i did defeat bob kerrey by a very wide margin. i did that because nebraskaians elected me knowing i don't support tax increases. >> woodruff: i asked you because in this deal that's coming out of-- or came out of the senate that is house is now cover considering 99% of americans will keep their tax cuts. less than 1%, people earning over $450,000 a year, you're saying that is still unacceptable? >> of course we have to provide those tax cuts to the 99%. but we're playing politics by doing it. we're saying, okay, we're going to provide tax cuts for these people but the rest they have to pay more. we don't need to create more division in this country. i mean just look at washington. i'm on the outside right now until thursday. look at washington. it is so polarized. and talk like that just makes it worse. >> woodruff: the argument that there should be a balanced approach, that there should be spending cuts but there also needs to be tax increases, your answer is? >> my answer is we need to look at spending cults. we need to look at entitl
summer. in november, she defeated former democratic senator bob kerrey by a wide margin, and replaces retiring democrat ben nelson. deb fischer, welcome and congratulations. >> thank you, judy. great to be here. >> woodruff: given the spectacle we're watching in the congress right now and the last few years and the low regard we know the american hold of congress are you sure you want this job? >> oh yes. there is so much that we need to do. we just need to roll up our shreves and get to work. in nebraska we're very fortunate. we have a nonpartisan uni camral. we have experience with working with republicans and democrats. we've been able to get a lot done in nebraska. i hope i can bring that here to washington as well. >> woodruff: you obviously have not been a part of the senate that has been voting the last few days but if you were sitting in the senate right now would you have voted for the version of the fiscal cliff deal that the senate voted on last night? >> i haven't been part of those discussions. like most americans i find it very, very frustrating to watch it. it's not wha
. they resent him because he said nice things about the president. they resent him because he endorsed bob kerrey for senate. >> rose: and was against the iraq war. >> there's all those issues. >> rose: did the president have any choice after he floated the name because of what happened to susan rice and he couldn't afford to be have -- to back down twice? >> certainly the chattering class feels that way and i think it's also the case that this president, like his predecessor, doesn't like being told by his advisors "don't do this because it will pick a fight." i think he does feel like he should do what he wants to do. i actually think-- leaving the merits of senator hagel aside-- i think it's kind of a risky choice even if he's confirmed because the president has a lot of business to do with republicans over the next two months, three months on not just the budget which is obviously biggest thing but on crime, on immigration, on energy. and it's hard to see how he comes out of this process with better relations with republicans on capitol hill after this process. so, again, whatever the
of israel yes or no and he's going to answer emphatically yes. >> bob kerrey saying chuck hagel will confirm himself an ally to israel if confirmed. iran's foreign ministry says it will improve relations. the biggest critic saying he's hostile to israel but soft on iran. national security advicers are fighting back, called him quote, a man of unshakeable integrity and wisdom who has served his country in the most distinguished manner in peace and war. joining me now is one of them, former security adviser brent skowcroft. there's an effort to show the real chuck hagel. you are a long-time friend and say he is very sound and thoughtful mind about him. but what do you think will be the toughest uphill battle for him to get through the confirmation that makes him u likely suited to have this job? >> i think the toughest part of the battle is that he is clearly a republican and fairly conservative republican, nominated by a democratic president to serve in a democratic administration. so that will will disquiet republican senators and democratic senators, i think it's an outstanding choice and i
this is a very defining moment for bob kerrey. this was a crucial want that they needed to do. developers will be able to use web technology. shibani: this is an important day for research in motion and blackberry because so many people have left it. they loved to find options that would satisfy a more playful experience. >> they were announcing some marquee names of app makers. shibani: "wall street journal," the kindle, "new york times" and many, any more. >> it will be a very critical to them. shibani: what is the word on the street? has blackberry been able to do that? >> i think it will come down to a lot of what they will be able to do now with their marketing. what kind of sales numbers they will start to show. the developing community is smart and about more mature than they were years ago. they will look at the statistics. nicole: it is not the finish line, but the starting point for the company. it has only just begun for blackberry. many people betting on it. the stock today is not betting on it. it is actually down today. thank you very much for joining us. back to you guys. d
time, they're against him because he endorsed his former senate colleague, bob kerrey, a long shot in nebraska but a medal of honor winner and a fellow vietnam wounded veteran who lost his leg in vietnam. so that's one of the cardinal sins against him. and he is opposed not by all of the mainstream lgbt groups but by some, by a few of them. the human rights campaign, chad griffin, very close to this white house, has said that he appreciates the fact that hagel has apologized for what he said 14 years ago about ambassador harman. >> so let's see, head of the uso. fought for the updated g.i. bill after 9/11. as andrea mentioned, wounded in war and would be the first soldier to become secretary of defense. but yet bill kristol, editor of the conservative "weekly standard," said this. "his backers can cite no significant legislation for which hagel was responsible in his two terms in the senate. they can quote no memorable speeches that hagel delivered and can cite no profound passages from the book he authored. they can summarize no perceptive hagelian analysis of defense or foreign p
-- some of it is personal. remember, you had a group in the senate. john kerry, a democrat. bob kerrey, a democrat. chuck hagel, john mccain. a group of vietnam veterans back in the bush administration who were more, i would say, in the colin powell wing of the republican party. war is a last resort. if you do have war, use overwhelming force. and then the neo con movement came in. you will have philosophical arguments over america in the world and the use of force. >> as john just points out, these two men were great buddies once upon a time. >> both vietnam veterans. >> both vietnam vets, decorated heroes and they were really close. then they started splitting over the questions of the use of force. then they split, of course, when barack obama ran for president. chuck hagel's wife endorsed barack obama when he was a candidate. chuck hagel stopped short of it. lots of republicans don't believe hague sl a republican, by the way. mitch mcconnell, leader of the republicans in the senate yesterday hold his fire, as jim was pointing out, hold his fire. didn't come out against the nominati
hagel endorsed her opponent. that would definitely probably be one. >> bob kerrey, right. >> i think the past few years, chuck hagel has been moving away from the republican party. what lindsey graham was talking about, his views on israel and that sort of thing, these interviews will be tough and challenging. we'll see what happens. >> jimmy, why not nominate a democrat for this position? is it really important that the president gives this rather bipartisan view of doing this? >> i mean, listen, if he nominated a democrat, fine. we already have a current democrat, former house member leon panetta, sitting over it at the pentagon. listen, the president is allowed to nominate whomever he wants. however, the senate is also allowed to say yes or no. if the senate wants to castigate and say no to one of their own, they are certainly welcome to do that. but i don't care if a president -- and, listen, barack obama has had republican cabinet members. george bush had democratic cabinet members. i like bipartisanship. i would like to see more of it. i think we need more diversity in the next
stayed with the party line. if you look back as recently as this last election cycle, he endorsed bob kerrey, a democrat over deb fischer, a republican in that senate race. most of the ire and scrutiny coming from republicans when it comes to chuck hagel. views in the middle east. on iran, on israel. that is the point that many of these -- many of these republican senators including many who sat on the senate armed services committee simply will not back away from. >> as far as -- you deal with apec. apec is a very powerful lobby. they're not going to get involved in this nomination. that's a big factor there. hagel did not endorse mccain. he did not endorse mitt romney. that's certainly playing a role here where republicans -- he's not a party guy. and once again this is a tough spot for the g.o.p. how can you oppose this guy when he -- you know, he opposed the iraq war. he did vote for it. some confusion. did he vote for that war and then he turned on as so many people did. >> peter: you know, as more and more comes out about chuck hagel, it becomes clear that the white house is goi
and supported bob kerrey in the nebraska race this time around, and they have given up on him, but my belief is that he will get by not just with the democratic vote, but the republican votes. >> do you believe he gets confirmed? >> yes, i do, but what is telling is that the silence is deaf deafening. and chuck hagel does not have a home and a natural constituency, so many in his own party is coming out, and what is telling is that you don't have a whole lot of democrats that are overenthusiastic about the candidacy and that is telling. >> let's talk about the second-term curse and we want to put a graphic ston screen -- graphic up on the screen and this is telling, president nixon with the watergate scandal, and president reagan with the iran-contra affair, and president clinton impeached, and president bush faced the great recession and hurricane katrina. >> and well sh, the hubris that people use for the second term overreach. i don't think that barack obama is self-confident and you see a seemingly different president to d today than we saw a year or two ago when we went through the debt
